hey,

If you play or sing and are looking to do some noise, give us a buzz.
The more the merrier.
We are mostly into alternative music, rock, electronica, noise, punk, metal, java.

Ciao

Hey,
I sing and would like "to do some noise". :)

Who are 'we'? can you tell us a bit about the group?

BTW, I'd PM you but I figure you can't reply yet.

Cheers

Learning guitarist looking for people to jam

Postby sorin » Mon, 07 Jan 2013 10:47 am

Hi,
I work as an engineer in Singapore and in my free time I play acoustic guitar. I recently bought an electric one and an amp and I am learning to play. It would be much more fun if would meet some people to share information and jam together. I found a cheap rehearsal room in geylang.
I am into alternative/indie rock, electronica, post-rock, dance-punk. Some bands name I like: Radiohead, Arcade Fire, The National, Interpol, Sigur Ros, God is An Astronaut, Mogwai, M83, Daft Punk, Justice and many more.

I have some management experience, I have organised a music festival in my home-country, also some music journalistic experience. I have a blog that promotes independent music in Romania. http://indiescouts.ro/ (in romanian language)
Looking forward to meet open-minded people to share/exchange music experiences. :)

Hi everyone, I know of an interesting cafe/bar, which has Jam nights on Tuesdays. Musicians gather and jam together. My friends and I have a lot of fun - whether we join in the jamming or not.

Let me know if anyone is keen to check it out together. :)

Hi,

wrongly assumed the forum would send mail notifications on replies.
we are at present 2, one plays guitar, bass, keys, ableton, drums, and the other drums and keys.
projects are listenable here:
http://www.myspace.com/detwiije
www.souncloud.com/autorock

we are gong to laneway festival tomorrow, as well as big day out next week.

otherwise, we can either meetup around a drink, or jump straight into jam.
Also, cannot pm yet.

ciao,

ben

hey sorin, guitar player here as well! I live a block away from the rehearsal studio next to aljuneid station. let me know if you're up for a jam, the telecaster's itching to see some action.

from the bands you've listed, i'd say we're on the same page musically :p

also up for a meetup. not going to be at big day out, but i'm still sporting my laneway tan.

I play acoustic and electric guitar..(but not very well, but am getting better with more practice). But can sing pretty well, either bass or tenor.

When I do play guitar I play mostlt folk/rock, metal, country & western (not sure how that happened), rockabilly or classical (yes yes... somebody has to play some Bocherinni sometimes).

But like I said I can sing pretty well. I was lead singer for my band in Brussels (brother on drums and friens on lead guitar and bass.. couple chicks on backing vocals).

But if anyone wants a singer and rhythm guitarist, pm me.
Who? What? How? Why? Where? When? Merde...
